How to use neem oil for your houseplants

In this story, you'll see how you can use Neem oil for your plants. First, we'll go over everything you need to get started.

Spray bottle

We're going to make a Neem oil mixture. For this, you'll need to get a normal spray bottle.

This can be any spray bottle you might already have. It's a good idea to get a spray bottle that you only use for your Neem oil mixture.

Warm Water

Add warm water to your spray bottle, until it's almost full.

Warm water makes it much easier to mix your liquid ingredients before using the spray bottle.

Neem oil

You'll need to get some cold pressed and unfiltered Neem oil. Neem Oil is a natural essential oil from a Neem tree.

You'll need about half a teaspoon of Neem oil in your spray bottle. It's quite strong stuff, so you won't need a lot of it.

Regular dish soap

The last part is regular dish soap that you can buy at your local grocery store.

For our mixture, we'll only need a few drops of this. Add 3-4 drops of the dish soap to your spray bottle.

Spray your plant

Now we're ready to spray your plant!

Shake your spray bottle before use, to mix the ingredients together. Now carefully spray your plant's leaves.
